CHARLESTON, S.C. - College of Charleston head coach Natasha Adair has announced the signing of two student-athletes for the class of 2013.
Jasmine Carter, a native of Lexington, N.C. and Breanna Bolden from Edgewater, Md. have singed their national letters of intent and will join the Cougars starting in the 2013-14 season.
Carter is currently a senior at Lexington high school and plays for the Lexington Yellow Jackets coached by Lamont Johnson. Carter was the Lexington Dispatch Girls Basketball Player of the Year and an All-County and All-District selection in 2011.

Off the court Carter has a 3.7 GPA, is a member of National Honor Society and is the class of 2013 president at Lexington High School. Carter would like to pursue a degree in athletic training.
"Jasmine or 'Baby Barkley' as I call her is a new addition to our growing Charleston women's basketball family," Adair said. "Jasmine's toughness and must win attitude makes it exciting to think about our programs future. Her scoring range, rebounding and deceptive foot speed will be a strength for us inside. Jasmine will fill up the hustle board with her commitment to defense. She's agile and anticipates very well. She's just flat out tough."
Bolden is a senior at South River High School and is on the preseason Baltimore Sun and Washington Post player to watch lists.
Bolden is a small forward and last year averaged 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists per game. She finished her junior season with 1,123 points and was an All Anne Arundel County selection last year.
In her sophomore year she was an Anne Arundel County Honorable Mention selection after averaging 15 points, six rebounds and five assists per game.
Bolden, who had been an honor student since elementary school maintaining a GPA as high as 4.1 and never lower tha 3.8, plans to pursue a degree in pre-medicine at the College of Charleston.
"I'm thrilled that Bre decided to join our Charleston women's basketball family," Adair said. "Bre will bring versatility, athleticism and a competitive edge to our program. Bre is a gamer who can score anywhere on the court. She will also thrive in our defensive system because of her quickness, length on the perimeter and her ability to change plays."
"Our future is bright knowing we have great people and families who support our journey to success," Adair added.
